Martha is a mother of three children in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. Martha narrates the entire video:
I was born and raised in Africa. I was raising two girls and a boy in this cultural environment that I did not know how it functioned. All I needed was somebody else, who can kind of peak into the lives of my kids. My daughters’ Big Sisters have been very instrumental in their lives. They genuinely care for them. I’ve got three kids, and I’m left exhausted at the end of the day. But, if somebody takes the time out of their day and can give time to my child…What did I do to deserve this? This kind of experience of being involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters has made me feel particularly blessed.
